"This is the place!! The food here is beyond fantastic! Everything we ate was great as well as the service. There is one thing that I want to RAVE about! The absolute BEST mushroom ravioli's I have EVER eaten!!! No joke, I dream about them. My wife and I make the drive to this beautiful restaurant mainly for the ravioli's! Try them, you will leave a happy person. Again, the service is always on-point, the wine selection superb and the people watching is fun. 5-Star Rating!"

"Lunch in Los Olivos: There are only a few places to eat in Los Olivos and the Wine Merchant doesn't disappoint. We split a salad and pizza and both were well prepared, tasty and reasonably priced. Wait staff was efficient and helpful and made the visit pleasurable."

"Quick service, and friendly! Go with the mushroom ravioli if you want a medium sized portion and something savory. It was really tasty!"
Crystal R., Costa Mesa, CA, CA, Yelp Review, 3/26/2016

"What a fantastic find! Stopped here on the way up to Paso Robles. Everything is made from scratch. My wife had the salmon and I had pasta with meat sauce. I normally don't leave anything left on the plate but the portions were so large that I had to. Good service, great food. This is a must stop if in the area. Even the bread with the olive oil and spices was out of this world. We are looking forward to going back."
Randy G., Laguna Nigue, CA, Yelp Review, 3/19/2016

"This is our third or fourth time. Always fabulous Little else to say but the BEST! Waiter gave us individual attention for wine and the menu. Food was outstanding. The salads are among the best--chicken curry and steak cobb salad."
